Anyone that is a pilot for the Army, can you guys help me out and let me know if you think it would be better to go to college first and ROTC or enlist out of high school?
College, but there is no guarantee that you will fly unless you get accepted into a para/Lin in the guard/reserves prior to commissioning. Otherwise when you assess, you throw your name in the hat with the other new LT's for a branch. The Army needs chemical officers...just sayin
